Cryptic Degrees

Royal Master Degree

This takes you back in time to the day before the death of the builder, who once again is the central character as he was in the Third Degree. Fully explaining many of the symbols of Freemasonry. It is preparatory to and intimately connected with the Degree of Select Master and contains much information necessary to the correct understanding of preceding Degrees as well as valuable instruction on the preservation of our Masonic traditions.
